07/25/2007 7:18 PM

Ok, since it's beginnings with "Back to the Primitive" The triforce of FR threads in my repetoir have been both my most successful and fullfilling, and also the bane of my GM existance. I want SO badly to actually make this storyline work! So here is my question to you guys...Is anyone interested in a rebirth of "Back to the Primitive/Roots...Bloody Roots"? I would love to get some of the RPGC titans back into things, Flark, UB, TK(WHERE THE FUCK IS HE?), Nova, and the gang...as well as some of the new blood. Let me know guys!

Here's the basic info:

Just a little info on the story, The setting is an almost prehistoric jungle in a villiage where the surviving races have gathered to live. Other than that, feel free to subplot for yourself so long as it doesn't interfere with the main story or the enjoyment of the other players.

I am going to ask that while I want to see a variety of races (i will allow any intelligent race that is not naturally chaotic to be played or if you wish, abberations of races not normally played. Please PM me about any race requests prior to posting character info)I would like to remain true to the barbaric, postapocolyptic feel, so please keep characters low tech and as a general rule use appropriate things for the period. (example: a scavenged healing ring and sword are ok, possibly even armor found in the ruins... but gleaming platemail, polished longswrds and wands out the proverbial "wazoo" are rediculous in a fight for survival story of this genre.) Lastly a few important notes: the bartering system has replaced money, tibesmanship is commonplace, and the lush jungle ruins are home to many beasts so there should never quite be that cozy, down home feeling.

also note, the story takes place in the time in which the original dieties have died and the successive avatars have yet to ascend to godhood. Therfore divine abilities or gifts may be boosted, weakened, or nullified completely until which time an avatar is determined.

These are a few of the tribes of the Lost Realms:

-Snowfire: Mainly human healers, medics, surgeons, etc.
-Shadowfox: Drow survivors, hate the rest of the community, but coexist for survival
-Ungarth: Barbaric remnants of all of the races, mainly comprised of those rescued from the forest. Live like nords or barbarians.
-Reyearth: civilized upperclass of all of the races who have lost everything and still struggle for superiority.
-The legion of 10: the last of the tribes are the legion of 10, ten tribes under one leader united by their gifts. (if you create a tribe it will fall under this category for the sake of argument.)

It is quite safe to assume that we're not the only ones left, however for the sake of the RP our characters have only briefly considered the possibility due to their focus on survival. A VERY integral part of the progression is in the possibility that there may be some hope of rebuilding and discovering other survivors as well as the fight to maintain what we've attained in the past year since the Fall of the Gods.

Other than that, feel free to push the envelope and take strides to improve upon the story in any way that you can. I value everyone's input so if you have a request, suggestion, or anything else, PM me or post it here and I will address you as soon as possible. I look forward to seeing where this one will go.

You can also combine race to make your own, but be sure you have my approval and a damn good reason. If you would like another race, simply request it and get approval.
please post the following information so that it can be approved.

Diety: (very important as it will determine many events in the story)
Brief bio: ( no more than 2 paragraphs. so as to allow flexibility in storytelling)

I'll be watching...and waiting...

ok... So would a bow and a short sword be alright? And do they have the ability to make leather armor? Also will they find new gear as they travel, perhaps of they come along ruins? Or are we just going to stay in the village and last a certain amount of time?

07/25/2007 8:36 PM

Ok, weapons and Items are available, just not NEW! so say you may have a wand of magic missile, but at most it may only have like...3 charges. You can have a bow, but it would be one made of wood and animal gut not silver. Also, the only limits as to what you may find are my imagination! the scope of the story is so immense that, trust me, you needn't worry about anything. Suffice to say that the journey will take you to places you never imagined.

I make no promises about my time and, more importantly, inspiration, but I'd be interested in reviving my spoiled little shit.

I would love to get some of the RPGC titans back into things, Flark, UB, TK(WHERE THE FUCK IS HE?), Nova, and the gang

I'm not into things? I'm just running the light work schedule. :P

My RP, and Lich's are just on the "When everyone has time" philosophy.

07/26/2007 4:38 AM

I think I can work around that type of schedule ;)

07/26/2007 7:28 AM

I might want to join, if you'd allow me, DK.

How similar is this to RBR? I did like that character concept, so hopefully this one will allow me to take it further than RBR did. Then again, I did sign on in the tail-end of the thread, as it was about to go under, so that probably had something to do with it.

Are you going to give us any more info on what we'll be doing? All you gave us was a sentence on the setting, and that's it. How is this going to differ from RBR?

The basic story will BE RBR the differences will be in who gets what power and how the players participate. Also, if we restarted you'd be in from the get go and wouldn't quite have to hide.

07/26/2007 7:32 AM

Ah. I was actually thinking of a different character, but if you want me to use the same one, I'll do that.

Either or, doesn't matter to me. Just let me know before you start this up, so that I can start thinking.

07/26/2007 7:45 AM

Hey man if you got a new character then awesome I'm just seeing if I can generate some interest. If you guys wanna post a char sheet then cool, I'll PM everyone to inform you of when the rebirth will begin...if at all.

07/26/2007 9:01 PM

could you give me a rundown of the atory and setting? I wasnr even a member during the RBR RP. I hear everyone talking about it and it makes me feel like a loser for not knowing anything about this... Unless you only want the more well known RP'ers in on this one.

Oh and in a side note I feel bad about the WWTV thread thing. I'm not sure if crix has even been on recently... Have we seen a post from him on Radium recently?

07/26/2007 9:11 PM

Don't feel bad. I have no idea what "Back to the Primitive" is, and only came in for the tail-bits of RBR. I read the whole thing, but only contributed during its death throes.

It's up to DK, though, this is his baby.

07/26/2007 10:02 PM

I think I can work around that type of schedule ;)

Then count me officially intrigued. Hehe.

07/27/2007 1:46 AM

I read the whole thing, but only contributed during its death throes.

But you contributed splendidly- I really liked that character concept.

07/28/2007 11:23 PM

Ummm...as far as getting some info on the storyline, I guess read up on it in the RBR thread and if Nanuk could help me with a link to the original RBR and BTTP I would love her SO much more. ;) I can't really tell because most of the story was to be a suprise. EVERYONE is invited. I guess I'll be starting it up soon guys!

07/29/2007 3:02 AM

Nanuk could help

Obviously not enough to be name dropped originally. Sniff.


How come I'm to be the links mistress? How bizarre.

Nevertheless, I shall go and try to find them- despite my pride being mortally wounded...

both of those links are straight to the OOC so you can see the set up for the stories.

Were those the two you were talking about?
I'll assume so- as BTTP was your first there shouldn't be anything earlier than that.
